About the Course
With the maturation of the Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) industry, legal services are now being outsourced en-masse and the American Bar Association has recently turned its attention to this subject and provided guidance.

• Regulatory and Professional Body Guidance Update
• Avoiding Unauthorized Practice of Law and Duty to Supervise
• Duty to Act Competently
• Duty to Disclose
• Client Confidentiality
• How to Bill Appropriately
• Limitation of Liability in LPO
• Export Control Regulations
• Data Protection
About the Instructor
